This was a heap of fun, weaving in and out of a latin vibe. From way, way down past the border Peru, Mexico 60's Spanish garagey to Californian Surf music. THrew in a bit of Joni, Neil, Emmylou and Linda. My new favorites Sammy Brue and Elisa Pernu, fresh Best Coast and Drive By Truckers covering the Ramones.

Special guest bumping around in the studio tonight, Louis Jarlov. He's talking an upcoming show with Tony Daunt and The Dauntless, but also spinning a few tunes. And we're still going hard on brand new Sammy Brue and Drive by Truckers. Discovered Michael Van and The Movers - a cool tune called 'Not coutry enough' and classics thrown in as well like Jerry Jeff and Emmylou.

Bernie Griffen is more than ably assisted by Garth Cartwright. Garth is the author of the book 'More Miles Than Money', a trip through the Southwest of the United States catching up with the old performers. One of whom was lydia Mendoza who was in her 90's when Garth spoke to her. It's a few years old now , the book , but in my opinion one of the loveliest dissertations on the love of Routes music i have ever read. He is in NZ for 3 months and will do another show with me sometime in February celebrating the 60th anniversary of Arhoolie Records. So "listen up" , that too will be a great show. Next week I have Ian Tucker up on the show to play his endless collection of vinyl. Happy New Year!

Last show for the year with a slightly reflective, christmassy vibe and a few favorites from the year. New Marlon, and special recorded in the lounge Marlon. A few from both of the Drive By Truckers 2020 albums, and a couple from new favorite son of the border radio show, Sammy Brue. Brand new Kendal Elise and yes, a special xmas cover of Wham by Taylor Swift.
